GORKI, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 875,000 people from Ukraine's conflict-torn south-eastern regions are currently staying in Russia, some 300,000 of them already having requested the refugee status or temporary residence permits in Russia, Federal Migration Service chief Konstantin Romodanovsky said on Wednesday.
He said one-third of these people are children.
Federal Migration Service has registered more than 2.8 million crossings of the Ukrainian-Russian border since April 2014.
Over the past month alone, 12 government resolutions and a presidential decree have been adopted to regulate issues related to the accommodation of refugees from Ukraine's war-torn east in Russia.
The latest report published by the United Nations says no less than 3,171 persons have been killed, including 27 children, and another 8,061 persons have been wounded since the beginning of the conflict in eastern Ukraine in April.
TThe report says the number of internally displaced persons has grown to 263,000.
